Welcome To My Blog

Thanks for checking the blog out... Hope it offers something a bit different every now & again. Though I come from a pseudo - Mod background (Soul & Ska in particular), I have a diverse taste in music & hope my varied posts will reflect this.

Cheers Skamanc .... I'm not after your undying gratitude, but please leave your thoughts, comments & opinions on the posts & content. I regularly up- & download material, plus buy and trade items. As such, if I have inadvertently "trodden on anyone's toes" in posting anything then please let me know & accept my apologies. Also please support the artists involved & remember that the blog is merely a pointer toward these various downloads, which are stored elsewhere. Legally, any downloads should not be retained for more than a week. So now I've told you the legal bit !

Feel free to give me a shout : waltjabsco@hotmail.com

HATFIELD & THE NORTH : BBC Sessions 1973 - 1974

Great collection of BBC tracks from 1973-74, mainly John Peel & Top Gear Sessions. Excellent Canterbury Scene outfit, whose members had previously been involved in scenemates Matching Mole, Caravan, Egg, Gong & Delivery. Only two albums were released during their original period - these will be posted soon in Japanese remastered format, including extra tracks.

More Hatfields on the way plus a Soft Machine 1968 Hendrix Tour roundup...


  1. Pity that Hatfield And The North BBC Sessions has gone.
